What is a Brazilian wax?
A Brazilian wax removes all of your pubic hair from your front, middle and back. Getting a Brazilian wax is an intimate experience, but not one that you need to worry over. Whether it’s your first Brazilian, or you’re a regular Brazilian client, our experienced beauty therapists will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible while the service is taking place.
At Caci, we give you the option of choosing either a full Brazilian, an extended bikini wax or leaving a little bit of hair on the front (known as a landing strip). Please talk to your Caci beauty therapist about what you are most comfortable with before your wax begins.
Where did the Brazilian wax come from?
Brazilian waxing was introduced in New York in 1987 by seven Brazilian-born sisters. Brazilian waxes have been popular since the late 1990s, but many say it was the infamous Sex and the City episode when Carrie got her first Brazilian wax that really sparked the trend.
Today, Brazilian waxing has superseded bikini waxing as the preferred waxing option for women. Many women comment on the feeling of improved personal hygiene and tidiness.
Brazilian wax procedure
- After you enter the treatment room, you’ll be provided with a disposable g-string to pop on, which you will wear throughout the treatment - this is for both hygiene and modesty
- Your beauty therapist will wax both your front and back in a way that is comfortable for you, so don’t worry about being put in any awkward positions
- Should you have any stray hairs, these will be tweezed after your waxing has finished, and a soothing lotion will then be applied
- After your Brazilian wax is over, ask your beauty therapist about the take-home, after-care products to minimise any ingrown hairs
For the first 24 hours after your Brazilian wax, you should avoid:
- Swimming in chlorinated pools
- Spa pools
- Sun bed, in fact the area should not be exposed to direct sunlight at all
- Highly perfumed products
- Spray tanning
- Physical exertion or activity
